Richard Hooker statue at Exeter Cathedral, England. He is best known for comparing his theology to a “three-legged stool” of Scripture, Tradition and Reason. Protestants often emphasize the authority of Scripture exclusively, while Roman Catholics have stressed the tradition of “what the church has taught for a long time.” But including logic or reason in our understanding of God enables Anglicans to embrace science, ongoing revelation and cultural development in our apprehension of justice and mercy.
